Midlife - The Free Theatre "Stefan" has a bit much at home and at work. Manager "Eve" is trying to get him to work even more. The Free Theatre wants, with their performance Midlife, to get people to discuss important issues. In the middle of the murmur a voice is heard: - Someone forgot a book here: Black belt in everyday effectiveness! She who asks is Susanne Olofsson, actor at the Free Theatre. Anders Brunskog, the other actor, enters. He speaks indignantly in his mobile, apparently with his old mother. His character Stefan Bengtsson is in midlife, both age and eventwise. He must cope with mandated overtime, kindergarten pick-ups, a teenager on the loose, an elderly mother and to arrange his holiday after his ex-wife's new husband's ex's plans. Soon, the stress collapse is a matter of fact, he is allowed sick leave despite some protests from the manager. For 35 minutes, with rapid scene changes, the two actors depict a number of people in Stefan Bengtsson's life. The show's mantra is: "it's a bit much at work right now, just ." After the show, the actors open up for discussion. Are the demands unreasonable and is it bad to be content? Can you have the same life during different phases, with and without children? Talking from a common experience also provides an opportunity to reflect on their your own without having to talk about yourself, the Free Theatre argues, which for years has toured with the show at various work places. Involvement Why is the talk of the importance of dedicated employees so often empty words? Maybe because commitment requires something from the management? -The manager cannot just continue to give orders; employees must be given room to develop knowledge and the work place to take advantage of the initiatives created. This according to researcher Richard Berglund, who earned his PhD in committed involvement. Anyone who calls for commitment cannot expect everyone to agree to the management's proposal. But there is much to gain committed employees; they are happier, work better, attendance increases etc. A common misconception is that commitment is a trait that some people have and others do not. Richard Berglund disagrees. He has developed an "engagement wheel" with ten important aspects such as the challenges at the right level. Today, too many targets are unrealistic or they cannot, for example, be measured. At WorkingLife, you will get to know more about the ten aspects are and how you can work for a workplace characterized by commitment. It's a waste not to follow up on recruitment! Remarkably many are looking for the wrong job and, too often, businesses do not take care of the people that they have recruited, often for substantial costs. This is Charlotte Hågård's conclusion after 25 years as a career counsellor. In 1992, Charlotte Hågård saw the need for another link in the job-seeking process and started her business Newstart. After the fact, she realized that she had also started a new industry. In the beginning, the work entailed a lot of individual and group consultations. But in the 2000's, companies began to consider careers within the organization. -Today the trend is "talent management" with everything from the introduction of employees to development and with the ambition to retain people but also to dismiss in a good way.
This is today's workplace trends, according to Charlotte Hågård: - Forget the lifetime jobs. - We share job tips online. - Generations work together more often. - More ways to search for jobs: for example by making a movie about oneself or using social media. - The person's own responsibility to be employable increases. - Many acquire a personal coach or advisor. What do you do if life takes a nosedive? From ballet to a wheelchair In a conversation between the rehab expert Anna Sporrong and journalist Yasmin Jungstedt, you will get insights into the road back after a serious accident. It is an honest, straightforward and clear description of all the challenges and adversities Yasmin's physical shortcomings create. Society's lack of understanding that among other things expresses itself in a lack of accessibility continuous to spill over to the soul. Yasmin describes how she has been able to translate some of this chaos into constructive forces that are striving forward. You have much to learn from what Yasmin and Anna has to tell. Do not miss this unique opportunity to share a story of rehabilitation that works. Working class and upper class - in the flesh or old clichés Sometime in the 1980s people began to talk about the post-industrial society. The time when a large industrial working class dominated society seemed to be over. Since then, industrial workers have become ever fewer. New jobs have sprung up in the service sector and a large ill-defined "middle class" has taken even more space. What does this mean to the old discussion about class society? Does class identity play a lesser role than before? Not at all, says Göran Greider, author and editor of the Dala- demokraten. Most still belongs to the working class, according to him. Nurses, shop cashiers and call centre salespersons have common interests. Markus Uvell, CEO of Timbro, disagrees. It is no longer so clear what it means to be "workers," he has written. You can hear them debating at Working Life 2012. Margot Wallström - A different kind of war After more than thirty years in politics, Margot Wallström is now returning to Sweden. She leaves her commission in the UN and has also decided to leave party politics. Until now, the only assignment she has accepted is the position as Chairman at Lund University. It is therefore particularly gratifying that she has chosen to participate in Working Life. The seminar will focus on how to make a real difference. A trait that she has refined over the years and that played a major role in her latest assignment as a "special representative" of the UN with the mandate to "monitor the vulnerability of women in war and conflicts." The right skills are not enough, research says To be really attractive in the labour market requires not only the right skills, but also an attractive surface and a fit body. This is evident in research from Karlstad University, which also shows that nine out of ten employers want employees with a healthy constitution. Seven out of ten indicate that they opt not to choose overweight persons. How should we relate to this?
What happens to people who are not exercising or being physically attractive, but is equally productive anyway? Listen to Henrietta Huzell, doctor of Work Science at Karlstad University and Day Klackenberg, CEO of Swedish Trade, who pinpoints which, often hidden, values that influence the recruitment process. During the seminar we will problematize the limitations and opportunities that come from this. Smart, sustainable and for all, this is what EU 2020 will look like In any case, if you believe the future strategy. The increased demands for transnational cooperation, especially in the Baltic Sea region, will affect many of you that are working on projects financed by EU's funds and programmes. WorkingLife provides you with a unique opportunity to network with colleagues from the Baltic countries and get practical tools for your particular project to make the transnational leap. • How we can improve access to employment, social security, health care, housing and education. • How we wil better use EU funding to support social inclusion and combat discrimination. • How we wil invest in social innovation to find smart solutions in the EU after the crisis, including more efficient and more effective social support. • How we can build new partnerships between the public and the private sector. What does the rise of China mean? Just as the population in the West, the Chinese are grappling with the challenge of an increasing number of elderly people being supported by a decreasing number of young people. - China is far too dependent on exports. It therefore needs to develop a stronger internal market by improving the standard of living also in the interior and create more of a consumer society. Major displacement of industries from the coast to the interior parts of China are currently on-going, Stefan Hult remarks. In connection with the labour law reforms in 2008 and the party's stated ambition to put more emphasis on social issues, contract law was tightened and penalties for deviations from it was introduced. Prior to the introduction of the 2008 labour contract law, China's governmental and only approved union (ACFTU) estimated that only ten percent of the country's workforce had employment contracts. While moving in the right direction, fewer than 50 percent are estimated to have a contract today. Workers have no right to strike, but there is on the other hand, no pronounced ban against it. In China, tens of thousands of strikes per year are carried out (the number of protests is classified as a state secret in China). The authorities look with growing concern to the protests; the watchword of the 2008 reforms was "social stability". Simultaneously with the new contract laws, a mediation mechanism between the labour market's parties was introduced. It has also become more common with collective agreements. - The authorities are fascinated by the calm conditions on the Swedish labour market and would like to learn more about Swedish labour law. But they find it difficult to assimilate that the Swedish model assumes freedom of association, Stefan Hult notes. Stefan Hult believes that Swedish companies can contribute to the development of labour law in China along with other European companies. The idea of corporate social responsibility is a concept of our times, he believes.
The programme begins to take shape! The programme to WorkingLife 2012 is taking shape and we can conclude that it again will be a very exciting day. We have updated the programme page with a small selection from the programme, exact times and complete programme will be added shortly (We still have many interesting hooks out there). But for the time being you can see what is scheduled on our programme page. In other words, it is, if you have not already done so, time to book a ticket for WorkingLife 2012, and there are still some tickets left for early bird price. Welcome! CEO of Arbetsmiljöforum, Carina Lindvall, wishes all welcome. STAGE A Where are you going and do you want to get there? The author and appreciated speaker Christer Olsson's starting point is the psychological school called common sense. Why do something more complicated than it actually is? Why try to enforce "musts" in someone when you can use the built-in will in each individual? Christer Olsson, Utvecklingspoolen Work until 75 or work yourself old? Not everyone has to work much longer, but many have to work longer than today if we are to meet the aging society's challenges. Following the EU's Year of the Elderly, we have invited Kenneth Abrahamsson, Programme Director of FAS and Thomas Fürth from Kairos Future to give you the whole picture. Kenneth Abrahamsson, Programme Director of FAS Thomas Fürth, Kairos Future A good CV is not enough, you have to be stylish as well. Beautiful and healthy people get jobs easier. This is not a new phenomenon, but today it can be discussed openly. The trend is that we are to a greater extent to take care of our bodies. Appearance signals a kind of moral status. Working life is not separated from society at this point. Henrietta Huzell, Karlstad University, and Dag Klackenberg, CEO of Swedish Trade, clarify the concepts. Henrietta Huzell, Karlstad University Dag Klackenberg, CEO Swedish Trade Threats and violence - a growing problem. It is important to be well prepared for threatening or violent situations.

STAGE B "Fake it 'til you make it" no longer works. Everyone lies, every day. For their own benefit, out of politeness or "white" lies. People are created to read minds, that is, discern others' reactions. But most of us are extremely good at really listening to others, because we immediately interpret everything, says Erik Ackerfeldt, Babel Kommunikation. In this exciting seminar, he teaches you to reveal other people's lies. Erik Ackerfeldt, Babel Kommunikation Employment law in China? How are you affected? With its rapid economic expansion China will become of great importance for the global evolution of labour law and enforcement. Stefan Hult, East Asia Co-ordinator for the Labour Minister, will give you the minute updates. Stefan Hult, East Asia Co-ordinator for the Labour Minister The crisis of job accommodation - not easy to get easier jobs. There are rarely easier assignments to get and legal requirements for what the employer must do are unclear. Yet, job accommodation is very important if we are to work longer. The solution to get a new little easier job with another employer under the so-called rehabilitation chain seems to be unrealistic, few employers are hiring. This is a dilemma that particularly affects older women, according to Anders Eklund, ombudsman for Lärarförbundet. He calls for, among other things, earlier times adaptation groups. Also participating are Birgit Löf from Akademikerförbundet SSR and Ingrid Ekhammer from Arbetsförmedlingen.

STAGE C Class society, does it exist? Does it show at work? Is class society beginning to lose its significance when fewer and fewer people are working in industrial work? Göran Greider, Dala-Democrat, and Mark Uvell, Timbro, have diametrically different views. Who is right and who is wrong? Listen to this ideological heavyweight discussion to form your own opinion. Göran Greider, Dala-demokraten Markus Uvell, Timbro Make your work team even better. The seminar provides inspiring theory, suggestions for discussions and exercises designed to inspire work teams for more cooperation, job satisfaction, conflict resolution, creativity and utility.
